Nice work Spawnius. Congratulations on completing the vow.
Can we get some close-up shots? Which are you particularly proud of, etc?

These look great. A better lighting setup would do these guys a wonder, as they look stunning now.

I'm eager to see more of your work... specifically some Sword Brethren, eh? <_<

Good job, from the looks of it. I'd love some closer looks/tips on how you painted the tabards. In the process of making some Dark Angels now, and need tips for the robes and stuff.

The Tervigon and Termagants on my right unleash a salvo of spines and grubs at my small platoon, forcing Commissar Hogan to order his men to bite the Emperor's glorious dirt and go to ground. Casualties are light, and under Hogan's gaze everyone claims the dirt is delicious.

 

Six-barreled rotary cannon capable of solving 6,000 problems per minute. I love assault cannons.
 
"Are there wolves on Fenris?" I ask.
"Go and look for yourself" he tells me, "Go on".

I wish i was better with painting black/white. I cant paint straight lines, quality of my brushes isn't that good, and the shoulder pads are always a pain in the butt for me. But overall im happy with those guys.

I'm eager to see more of your work... specifically some Sword Brethren, eh?

If you would like to see more of my work, you can find it Here. I often go back and forth with my army, constantly repainting them everytime i get better with painting.

Basecoat of pure vomit brown over undercoat of fortress gray. Then it is almost entirely covered by the first highlight layer of 50-50 vomit brown and bleached bone. That is followed by working up the highlights by adding more bleached bone to the mix, and after reaching pure bleached bone the highest points are higlighted by adding skull white to the mix. This is how i paint them.

They look really good, especially considering what you said about your skills and the state of your paintbrushes :lol:

Anymore on the way?

You carry the Emperor's will as your torch, with it destroy the shadows.

these are really nice, I'm especially impressed by the eyes, getting those fine highlights with dodgy brushes must have been a real challenge!
